Donald Trump Has Criticised Sadiq Khan Over The London Bridge Attack (Again)


In a series of tweets, Trump misconstrued a statement by the mayor saying there was "no reason to be alarmed" over increased police presence in the city. He accused the media of "working hard to sell it!"

President Trump has drawn harsh criticism for attacking Khan in the aftermath of Saturday's attack.

"Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement", Trump wrote on Twitter.

In a clear reference to Trump's tweets Sunday and Monday criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan, Clinton said: "It's a time for steady, determined leadership - like we are seeing from local authorities in London, including the mayor of London". It's being touted that he was referring specifically to "a visible increase in police activity on the streets of London in the wake of the attack".

"Maybe rather than the mayor of London attacking, maybe he should do something about it", Trump Jr. said. If Theresa May has an opinion about Bill de Blasio she's kept it to herself, though the Prime Minister was compelled to say Mr. Khan is "doing a good job".

"It's even more important that we work together with our allies and our friends and our partners - yes, to keep us safe, but also to expand our understanding of what we can achieve together", Clinton said.

In the wake of Trump's comments, Khan has publicly stated that the president's scheduled visit to the United Kingdom should be cancelled.

"Police officers in our communities act as the eyes and ears of the security services, providing the intelligence and information that allows us to disrupt attempted terrorist attacks".

The Independent reports that Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said he saw "no reason" to withdraw the invitation following Trump tweets.

Khan said he had been too busy dealing with the fallout from the attack to respond directly to the tweet.

A YouGov poll of 1,000 Londoners published on Monday found that Khan was more trusted than both May and national Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to make the right decisions about keeping Britain safe from terrorism.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said she did not think it was fair to characterise Trump's tweets as "picking a fight" with Khan, who is the first Muslim elected as London mayor. "Honestly I've got better and more important things to focus on", he added.

Cancel the state visit and tell Trump where to get off.

Khan also stopped by Good Morning Britain, where the always-contrary Piers Morgan first (at the beginning of the below clip) tried to argue that Trump might have a point about how to stop terror, but Khan didn't buy into the argument because of what he calls Trump's "ignorant" history of Islamophobic remarks and policies.
